Warriors! Come Out To Play ... This New The Warriors Board Game

How has it taken this long to get a "The Warriors" board game? I know Walter Hill's 1979 action movie is a bit of a cult title and doesn't carry the cache of something like "The Thing" or "The Shining," which have previously gotten the tabletop treatment, but still! The whole set-up for the movie is essentially a board game itself.One group of hoodlums has to traverse the boroughs of New York and each area has a unique hostile gang wanting to kill them. The film starred Michael Beck, James Remar...

Everything We Know About Obi-Wan Kenobi So Far

The "Star Wars" Sequel Trilogy might seem like the basis of a perpetual internet war that will forever divide the fandom, but at one point much the same could have been said about the prequels. Once derided as nothing short of the worst movies ever made, a certain generation of fans -- okay I'll 'fess up to it, it's mostly my generation -- have rehabilitated the movies as worthy additions to the canon in their own right ... missteps and all. One thing fans of all ages can agree on is the casting...

With production ramping up, the intense speculation can begin... Will we see Grogu and Luke Skywalker training? How will it tie into the spin-off series "The Book of Boba Fett" that just completed shooting?

The Massive Mistake That Nearly Destroyed Toy Story 2

People look to Pixar's films for entertainment, but also for inspiration. If you need something to inspire you to back up your computer work sooner rather than later, look no further than the near-disaster that happened during the production of "Toy Story 2."According to Rotten Tomatoes, the "Toy Story" series is the best-reviewed film franchise of all time. Over the years, "Toy Story 2" has managed the rare feat of upholding a 100% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, just like the first. Yet neith...

Finch Poster Shows Off Post-Apocalyptic Tom Hanks, His Robot, And His Dog

I know of only two constants that keep me grounded amid this chaotic and unpredictable world: Zendaya is Meechee, and Tom Hanks is Finch. That latter point is what's relevant here, as Amblin Entertainment and Apple TV+ have revealed the first official poster for the post-apocalyptic movie that's fittingly titled -- you guessed it -- "Finch." Tom Hanks, of course, portrays the eponymous Finch in another film where he has to share the screen with the absolute minimum number of other human beings. ...

New Batgirl Actress Leslie Grace Says Being Cast 'Actually Broke' Her Brain

"In The Heights" breakout star Leslie Grace is our new Batgirl — and the story of how she was given the part is enough to make someone think fairy tales are real and all dreams come true.The Bronx native revealed to Variety that she got on a last-minute Zoom call with the HBO Max film's creative team for a final casting test, which turned into a sweet moment where the filmmakers asked her to read an email from them out loud."I open it and it says, 'I'm Batgirl'... and my brain broke," the singer...

Michael Mann's Tokyo Vice Adds Japanese Stars To Ansel Elgort-Led HBO Max Series

It's been six years since filmmaker Michael Mann last directed a feature film with 2015's "Blackhat," though it somehow feels even longer than that. In the meantime, before that streak is officially broken on the big screen, we've known that Mann will be turning to streaming to direct the first episode of "Tokyo Vice." That HBO Max series is adding to its ensemble cast, with reports indicating several Japanese stars are joining the production that already includes Ansel Elgort, Ken Watanabe, and...

Will There Be A Sequel To Edge Of Tomorrow? Here's What We Know

(Welcome to Will There Be a Sequel?, a series where we answer that question and explore what comes next.)"Edge of Tomorrow" was released back in 2014 and has since been embraced as one of the better sci-fi movies in recent memory. Unfortunately, the marketing campaign was a bit jumbled, with the tagline "Live. Die. Repeat." being confused for the title, as it was at one point going to be the title. But between Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, director Doug Liman's inventive take on "Groundhog Day" wi...

Michael Jackson Could've Starred In Labyrinth Instead Of David Bowie

Imagine it's the mid-1980s and you're director and puppeteer extraordinaire, Jim Henson, casting the Goblin King for your movie, "Labyrinth." Which music superstar would you go with: David Bowie, Michael Jackson, or Sting?Henson, the co-creator of "The Muppets with his wife, Jane, ultimately went with Bowie. However, there's a world in which Jackson, the onetime King of Pop, could have played the Goblin King in "Labyrinth.""Labyrinth" turned 35 this year, and though Henson himself passed away in...

Sandman Netflix Series Will Bend Genres, Just Like The Original Comic

Neil Gaiman's comic series "The Sandman" is a sprawling epic that combines multiple genres to tell its near-mythical story. The series' many arcs fluctuate between fantasy, drama, horror, and more, all to tell the story of seven beings known as The Endless. In an interview with Collider, executive producer David S. Goyer shared that the series will be a "faithful adaptation" of author Neil Gaiman's source material, and will be just as genre-bending as the comics.  Hell Is A 24 Hour Diner In the ...

The show about nothing will not be nowhere. Let's not get hung up on double negatives, though that does sound like something the characters on "Seinfeld" might do in the booth at their favorite coffee shop. For years, TBS was the home for "Seinfeld" reruns on television, but all of that is about to change as the show moves to Comedy Central in October.Deadline reports that Comedy Central will be the new exclusive TV outlet for "Seinfeld," starting October 9, "with a countdown of the top favorite...

Disneyland Ride Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin Is Getting An Overhaul

The last few years for the Disney theme parks have been full of change, which is to be expected and embraced. Some of those changes have focused on updating current attractions to become more culturally relevant. In some cases, as with Pirates of the Caribbean, it means revising show scenes to eliminate unpleasant stereotypes. In others, as with the forthcoming update to Splash Mountain, it means updating a ride from stem to stern. Now, another ride is getting an update, in the former style: Rog...

The Blair Witch Project Ending Explained: As Maddening And Mysterious As It Was 20 Years Ago

The insidious ending of "The Blair Witch Project" has boggled my mind and the minds of many others for an incredible 20 years. As the story goes, attendees at Sundance 1999 didn't know if they were watching a fictional account or a tried and true documentary when Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez's masterpiece screened — and even now, in the age of the internet and the ability to debunk information at the stroke of our fingertips, it still packs just as much of a punch. Even more famously, the f...

Here's Where You Can Watch The 2021 Emmys

For many of us, television and streaming helped keep us company (and keep us sane) throughout the pandemic. While we huddled in our homes, we watched hours of content to stave off loneliness and fears, and now it's time to award the best of those programs at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards. The Emmys will be an in-person event once more, complete with the red carpet, acceptance speeches, and awkward jokes from presenters. Despite the fact that many shows had to delay production due to the pandemi...

HBO Max's Harry Potter Quiz Show Will Be Hosted By Helen Mirren

That's kind of weird, right? However, if you think about it, everything about HBO's upcoming "Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses" feels more than a little off. When the quiz show was announced back in May 2021, we questioned its very existence, and things have only become stranger since then. There are, of course, the obvious issues, like the fact that it's hard to be a Harry Potter fan in a world where J.K. Rowling seems hellbent on driving everyone away from the series with her transp...

The 20 Best 2000s Horror Movies Ranked

After the bountiful harvest the decade before, horror films fell into somewhat of a rut in the '90s. It was an era that saw the long overdue death of a number of once-lucrative franchises like Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, thanks to sequels with lessening box office returns. However, a resurgence began with the dawn of the new millennium. With the emergence of digital film technology and affordable computing power, films were cheaper to make, while the internet was a brand new fro...
